Don't Let Your Throat Tighten

Ocean Swells, by Arthur B. Davies

Don't let your throat tighten
with fear. Take sips of breath
all day and night, before death
closes your mouth.

Hi Ruth - can't get enough of Rumi...
I like this one - so urgent.

What Rumi intends to say here is that a person should die one death, the death that's actual one and not die every moment with fear while living.This is achieved when we humans have complete faith in the Almighty

One should die only once in a lifetime that's when the actual death takes over rather than dying every moment due to fear or anxieties whilst alive.This is achieved when the human being has unwavering faith n hope in the Almighty Lord.
